Dragon Age II

Updated on November 19, 2014

Epic Dark Fantasy RPG

Dragon Age 2 is the second game in the popular RPG series from Bioware. It follows in the footsteps of DA:O with its gritty realism, dark fantasy world and deep storyline. Take control of Hawke, a Blight survivor from Lothering, and follow his rise to power in an epic story that spans over a decade.

Dragon Age II was released on March 8, 2011 in the North America, and March 11, 2011 in Europe. It runs on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms. You will find more information about the game on the page below, such as a list of features, system requirements, and the trailer.

Game Features

You can play as a rogue, warrior, or mage, with 3 additional specializations each. Personally, I think nothing beats scorching your enemies with fireballs.

Dragon Age 2 is a true successor to the Dragon Age series: dark fantasy role-playing at its best. However, DA2 also features numerous improvements over the first game.

  • Become a legend: shape the destiny the of Dragon Age II world itself as Hawke, a Blight refugee from Lothering. Rise to power in an epic story that spans over a decade!
  • Connect with Dragon Age: Origins: players will be able to import their game saves from DA:O. It will affect the world of Dragon Age II; however, it won't be possible to play your characters from the first game.
  • Enjoy the improved graphics, stunning visual detail and new cinematic experience.
  • Fully voiced main character: much like in Mass Effect 2, your male or female version of Hawke will participate in conversations as you make the choice of how to respond.
  • Improved combat system makes the battles faster, fiercer, and more dynamic and fun, especially on the consoles.
  • Multiple romance options: find love during the dark times among your party members and other in-game characters.

Post-Release Reception

The game might have done some things right to earn its 82 MetaCritic rating from the gaming websites, but the poor user's rating of 4.3 for the PC version tells an entirely different tale. Despite improved graphics and combat system tweaks, DA2 suffers from poor storytelling, weak roleplaying aspect, and even a lack of a definitive ending. Even combat encounters are said to be very repetitive and boring. Hopefully Bioware will take these complaints into account when developing their upcoming title, Dragon Age: Inquisition.
